A Love Song From The North

Rating: 3.2

Tell me no more of thy love, papeeha,
Wouldst thou recall to my heart, papeeha,
Dreams of delight that are gone,
When swift to my side came the feet of my lover
With stars of the dusk and the dawn?
I see the soft wings of the clouds on the river,
And jewelled with raindrops the mango-leaves quiver,
And tender boughs flower on the plain.....
But what is their beauty to me, papeeha,
Beauty of blossom and shower, papeeha,

That brings not my lover again?

I hear the black koel's slow, tremulous wooing, And sweet in the gardens the calling and cooing Of passionate bulbul and dove....scintillating! Many congratulations! !

Mrs. Sarojinidevi Naidu's name is at the top. Not only that, but she was truly one of the jewels of the world.

WHEN POETS COMPOSE THEY NEVER THINK OF THE TIMES WHEN THEY WILL BE NO MORE WHO WILL OR WHO WILL NOT READ THEM FOR SURE All Poets simply compose for the love of their muse do not merit and ability ever confuse poetry is just a voice a reflection of emotion sing the song let birds follow lovers will fall enroute...CONTD
